1956 Jaguar XK140 Fixed Head Coupe

During the era of the second-generation of Jaguar XK models, from 1954 to 1957, the Roadster body style was the most popular and accounted for the majority of Jaguar’s sports car production and sales. The Roadster had some practicality issues, however, that were overcome by the release of the Fixed Head Coupe body style in 1951. A Roadster, characterized by its lack of a top and open-air two-seat configuration, provided drivers with little protection from the elements and made events such as driving in the dark or for long distances quite uncomfortable. On the other hand, the 1956 Jaguar XK140 Fixed Head Coupe (and other Fixed Head Coupe model-years), characterized by its permanent roof, would allow drivers four-season driving and real protection from the elements. The FHC would grow in popularity, particularly during the third-generation of Jaguar XK’s, but at the time received little praise other than for its clean lines and beautiful curvature. These models were also primarily exported to the American market, so most are left-hand drive. If you own a right-hand drive, you indeed have something that is rare.
